Aaron Rodgers is holding out of Packers minicamp, but apparently James Jones said his decision has nothing to with the Front Office like we thought but a private phone call.
That’s right. Rodgers isn’t unhappy with management, coaching, or any of the other things we’ve been speculating about for the last few months. According to James Jones on The Herd, his real beef comes from a private phone conversation.
What could that phone conversation have been? Well, that’s apparently something else we’ll have to speculate about now as Cowherd wouldn’t reveal anything.
“I’ve talked to Aaron. He told me it’s not about the GM… He’s willing to go in there and make this thing right.”

Does This Mean Aaron Rodgers Will Stay With The Green Bay Packers? What Happened On The Private Phone Call That Upset Rodgers That James Jones Referred To?
On the segment on The Herd, James Jones really seemed persistent that Rodgers would be willing to make amends with the Packers organization.
Jones used to be a receiver for the Green Bay Packers and has caught plenty of passes from the reigning MVP in the past. Therefore, it might be safe to say that Rodgers and Jones have had a special connection and so maybe Jones is actually saying something that makes sense.
He said the issues aren’t going to be resolved immediately, but there is a great chance that by training camp Rodgers will be back and ready to gear the Packers up for another Green Bay run to the Super Bowl.
The frustrations also go back a long way. It’s been evident since the Julius Pepper and Jordy Nelson days according to James Jones. Nelson was Rodgers’ top target for a great chunk of his career, but the Packers made the surprising move to let go of him.
This is something else that Jones brought up when referring to Rodgers’ frustration and annoyance with Green Bay. As for the phone call, we’ll just have to guess. Was it another organizational blunder where the Packers staff said something they didn’t mean? If it’s fixable, how bad was this phone conversation? We might never know.
